The Doughnut Vault

The Doughnut Vault

I’ve been meaning to try this place for a long time. I definitely wanted to try it while I was still pregnant and my philosophy was – calories don’t count.

I’ve seen reviews on it which intrigued me, but nothing made me want to try it more than the daily line outside the door.

Amazing, considering The Doughnut Vault only has three kinds of doughnuts and one kind of coffee!

I tried buying once on a Sunday, they weren’t open. Then tried them on MLK day and again, not open on Mondays. In fact, I’ve never seen a company make less efficient use of their space! They basically just sell a few items until they are sold out. I arrived at 9:15 and the guy in front of me was hoping they still had all the varieties. They opened at 8:30!

I guess it’s one of those new era type of business plans.  Hip Hop blares in the back ground as you step to the counter to place your order. They twitter prolifically. The website is a blog. They are an elusive sort of cult – open for a short time and not every day. The product is not abundant. They make special doughnuts on certain days to keep the regulars interested. This week they made Pistachio, Lemon Poppyseed, and Double Chocolate Yellow Cake.

A guide to the menu above: The old fashion buttermilk are a normal size doughnut, kind of like a cruller. The gingerbread stack are actually three doughnuts per order. The glazed doughnuts are the size of your head. But don’t let that deter you. You’ll eat every last bit of it.

And the review on the doughnuts? Amazing. Sugary and tasty on the outside with fluffy, dough on the inside. I highly suggest trying them once but unless you want to die young of a heart attack, don’t make it a regular breakfast choice.
